Good morning friends. Did you celebrate Earth Hour? We decided to do something a little different and celebrated 12 Earth hours by turning off our electricity at the mains from 8:30 last night until now.
What a great night! We filled our room with candles, talked, connected with one another, and listened to the owls calling one another in the darkness. It was a fabulous evening and one which we might make a regular point of doing.
We’ve had another great week at Chez Green; just as I think I’ve got nothing left to write about rubbish I go and fill another week with stories and ramblings.
We started off with news about a certain packaging rogue which Mr Green just had to buy to prove a point.
Meanwhile, Little Miss Green was saving the planet with the art of letter writing. Find out what she was up to.
Then I shared news about my funky plastic container – something in my life that helps me reduce my food waste and is simple and functional. Take a peek and tell us about the little things in your life that help to reduce your landfill waste.
Mid week we introduced you to the new game from WRAP and Recycle Now – The Regeneration Game. It’s fun, it’s educational and I learned that I can recycle some things closer to my home than I realised! Why not have a go and let us know what you think?
On our 3rd get off your arse Thursday many of you joined in with saving the world. We ask that you do one small job towards reducing your landfill waste and post up your successes for everyone to read. Circle Thursday in your diary for next week and join in the fun.
There was good news on the horizon when I learned that our council reckon the 2020 recycling and composting target could be reached today! Read all about it.
On Friday, I was out snaffling up a bargain. Find out what I was up to and what I got for free!
Next week we’ll be sharing some more ‘real life’ stories and dishing the dirt on Cornwall council. We’ve been busy building a new feature which we hope to launch; so look out for it and be prepared to be wowed!
Have a wonderful day; the sun is shining, so why not get outside and plant some seeds for a little self sufficiency later in the year?
